NTEA Scores Victory with New Certification Regulations

April 5, 2005

FARMINGTON HILLS, MI — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently issued its long-awaited final rules on multi-stage vehicle certification.The National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) has led the fight to reform NHTSA's motor vehicle certification regulations as they apply to multi-stage produced vehicles, such as work trucks, for more than a decade. The Association's persistence has paid off in a major victory for the commercial truck and transportation equipment industry yet has still preserved the safety benefits of the existing system.Throughout the course of this decade-long endeavor, the NTEA pursued and won a court case on this issue (NTEA vs. NHTSA), educated Congress about the industry, and helped secure White House and Congressional approval and funding for a negotiated rulemaking on multi-stage vehicle certification. As a result of the Association's persistent efforts, regulations have finally been issued, forcing a major restructuring of the certification requirements to recognize the differences between mass-produced passenger cars and multi-stage-produced work trucks.
